South-facing gully slope is ready for planting
The south-facing gully slope at the back of Sexton Road is ready for planting. There are two areas where the nurseries that used to operate up the top, dumped old potting mix. This is very loose and moves around, downhill, every time it is walked on. The original soil underneath is quite firm. We have secured dead punga trunks on these areas and then planted a mixture of rye grass, lucerne, red clover and white clover to hold the surface until the natives get established.
